Lindsay got the majority of the touches last week and he put up a dominant performance against the Patriots. While Lindsay certainly doesn't have as high of a ceiling with Gordon back in the lineup, he's still worth rolling out as a safe RB3 option in a tough matchup.Brown was hobbled last week and just missed on connecting on a big play that would've made his fantasy output look much different. While he hurt fantasy managers that took the shot on him last week, he's still worth rolling back into your lineup this week. Assuming that he's fully healthy, Brown should be viewed as a solid WR3 with top-20 upside.
Mike Tagliere

So, apparently, Gordon had strep throat last week and it was the reason for missing the game. He's still facing a possible three-game suspension by the league, so it's a situation we need to pay attention to as the week goes on. Lindsay stepped in and played well in his absence, racking up 101 yards on the ground against a tough Patriots run defense. Do the Broncos move towards more of a timeshare with Lindsay back to full health? Against the Chiefs, they'll want to utilize their running backs a lot. Their opponents have chosen a run play on 47.2 percent of plays, which ranks as the fifth-highest mark in the league. In terms of weighted opportunity, running backs average the 10th-most against the Chiefs, and though the numbers haven't been huge to this point, the level of competition has been weak. Per Football Outsiders DVOA, the Chiefs are still the sixth-worst run defense in the league. The question is: Can the Broncos keep the game close enough to keep getting touches to their running backs? Six different running backs have totaled 62 or more yards on the ground, while seven running backs have totaled at least 25 yards through the air. If Gordon plays, you have to assume he gets the majority of work, including pass-game and goal-line usage, which is important, so consider him a somewhat sturdy RB2, though the 18.8-point team-implied total is worrisome. Lindsay didn't even get a single target last week, which worries me about his floor. Lindsay also played this team twice last year without Gordon and finished two games with just 68 scoreless yards on 18 carries. He's more of an RB3/flex play this week who carries gamescript concerns, as he ran just 11 routes in Gordon's absence last week.After catching six passes in Week 1, Brown has been quiet on the stat sheet, as he's totaled just eight receptions over his last four games combined, including two games with nothing to show that he even played. If you've paid attention, you know that Brown's been trying to play through a lower body injury, and it's clearly affecting his play. The matchup against the Jets is a great one, and he showed that when he caught six passes for 70 yards and a touchdown against them in Week 1, though a lot has changed since that game where he got 10 targets. He hasn't seen more than six targets since that game. There have been nine receivers who've totaled at least 52 yards against the Jets, so we should see some sort of floor if Brown is healthy, so paying attention to his practice participation is important. For what it's worth, Brown would see Blessuan Austin the most in coverage, who has been better than Pierre Desir/Lamar Jackson, though not great. If Brown can get in a full practice at some point, he can be considered a low-end WR3 this week with some upside. If he's limited, he is more of a risk/reward WR4.

Gordon's absence in Week 6 gave Lindsay a chance to be the featured back and he responded with 23 rushes for 101 yards. He should be a flex option at home against Kansas City, even if Gordon III is back in Week 7.
